Pathfinder is one of Nissan’s most popular brands, which has dominated the crossover vehicle market for more than thirty years. Now in its fourth generation, Pathfinder is preparing the new model, which should continue a long line of automobiles that helped Japanese car maker to establish itself on the markets all over the world. 2017 Nissan Pathfinder should come with a considerable amount of updates, which will take off where the previous model stopped.
Design: Exterior and Interior of new 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
Pathfinder is one of Nissan’s most recognizable vehicles with its trademark massive body which perfectly represents the power and elegance of this CUV line. By switching to D platform, Nissan is hoping to establish more modern and fresh look that will present the brand in the new light. Perhaps the most significant change is the usage of aluminum based materials. As a consequence the new model will be 4.000 pounds lighter. The front end of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder got a mild refreshment in the form of a hefty bumper. Its grille appears to be larger, while headlights and taillights kept the form they had on the previous model. The forthcoming Pathfinder has a more assertive and dominant look, then his predecessors, which as a result makes it more attractive to potential buyers.
The inside will get more roomy and will have more space for the passengers. Nissan’s CUV will be able to comfortably accommodate up to seven passengers, and the seats will be arranged in three rows. All seats and the steering wheel are covered with leather. Numerous technology features will contribute to the impression of modernity the vehicle emits. Commodities such as rearview camera and other safety technologies will ensure that security is on a high level. Infotainment system which is enriched with a powerful sound system will be operated through a modernly designed touch screen. Everything about this vehicle suggests luxury and comfort, but at the same time it is more than obvious that it is a CUV which can be relied upon.
2017 Nissan Pathfinder Engine
Although the forthcoming 2017 Nissan Pathfinder comes with numerous changes, what lies under the hood will remain the same. As before, the vehicle will be available with petrol and hybrid engines. The base model will likely feature a 3.5 liter V6 engine with capability to develop up to 300 horsepower and 250 pounds of torque. The hybrid model will be powered with 2.5 liter 4 cylinder gasoline engine and 15kw motor which is charged by a lithium ion battery set. It will have the capacity of 250 horsepower. Perhaps, this vehicle will not be among the most powerful CUVs on the market, but there is no doubt that it can provide more than a solid performance.
Release Date and Price of Pathfinder Nissan
The Japanese car manufacturer hasn’t released any official information regarding the actual release date of the Pathfinder’s upcoming model. Industry experts are saying that we can expect this newcomer by the end of 2016, at the earliest. Some more skeptical estimations say that it will hit the market in the first few months of 2017, because it is still in developing stage, and setbacks are quite possible.
Early projections place 2017 Nissan Pathfinder in the price range between 28.000$ and 35.000$. These are only estimations, and more information will become available as the release date approaches.
